Extra Seat Time Is Worth Extra Effort

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – If there’s one thing every racing driver craves, it’s seat time. This year, Bourdais has won three races in the WeatherTech Championship paired with van der Zande in the No. He’s also competed in every WEC race in an ORECA Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2) fielded by Vector Sport. On Sunday, Bourdais will have the unique opportunity of sharing the Vector Sport ORECA with IMSA teammate van der Zande in the WEC 6 Hours of Fuji in Japan. Pierson later added a full slate of WeatherTech Championship LMP2 races for PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports to his calendar. In addition, the IMSA car utilizes Michelin tires, with the WEC version running Goodyear. “With IMSA, we’ve just been lacking the missing piece,” Pierson said.
